I hope somebody can help! My 7 month old daughter will not sleep unless she's being held! When she was smaller, she had very severe reflux and had to be held upright pretty much all the time. And when she would scream for hours and hours the only thing that comforted her was being bounced in the bathroom with the exhaust fan on. Now, she is completely incapable of falling asleep on her own and as soon as we lay her down in her crib she immediately stands up. Every. Single. TIME. She is also breastfed. My husband and I end up taking turns sleeping on the couch with her every night, so neither of us sleeps well and we haven't slept together in months. It's horrible. I DO NOT believe in cry it out, so I've tried everything else possible. We've tried swaddling, heating up her bed, putting a shirt in that smells like me, white noise, and everything else possible. I've recently started putting her in bed with us but my husband isn't crazy about that. Can anyone please help?
